WICHITA — Wichita State University's director of the Center for Entrepreneurship has been placed on administrative leave.

Tim Pett, who also is a professor and the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Keith Pickus, WSU's interim provost and a history professor, confirms Pett's leave.

"I can't talk about it," he says. "I can confirm that he has been placed on administrative leave. Nothing else."

Pickus won't say when Pett was put on leave or give any other details.

"It's a personnel matter. I can't talk about it."

Pickus says no one is in the director's position.

"Not at the moment."
